Safety Measures and Precautions (Annex A)

We are doing everything we can to make you feel safe when you come into the gym and your patience and support is appreciated.  Please expect the first few weeks to have heightened safety precautions, but when we feel the time is right based on expert opinion, certain measures will be eased off.
.

  • Member On-boarding & Screening.  All current members will complete a Member Screening & Intake Form and will sign a digital waiver.  New members will be screened in a similar manner, with their first consultation being over zoom.
    .
  • Class Time and Schedules.  To respect social distancing we have limited class sizes to 8 people and to allow for necessary cleaning time, our classes will be 45 minutes long.  Please note this first week will be a trial period as we navigate this new way of operating.  We will also be tracking busier class times, and attendance to adjust the schedule as needed as the weeks go on.  Our online schedule will be live as of noon on Saturday, June 20th.
    .
  • Pre-Registration for class.  Since we will have modified class sizes, pre-registration for class is required to attend. Each class will have a waitlist as well. All members that are registered for a class must attend that class or remove their name from the registration within two hours of the class start time to allow the next person on the waitlist to attend.  You can reserve your preferred class time online up to 48 hours before class.  If your schedule is flexible please consider scheduling a less popular class time to allow those who may have a tighter schedule to get their workouts in.   Late cancels and no shows will result in fees of $5 per session missed and will be billed on the same date as your current membership.
    .
  • By appointment Only.  Until we get to Phase 4 of our plan, all activities within the gym will be by appointment only.  For the time being, we will not be accepting drop ins.  New members however can join by booking a free virtual consultation here.
    .
  • Enter and Exit plan.  Members will enter through the front door and exit using the door that leads to the back of the building.
    .
  • Temperature checks. The facility will keep a thermometer to check members and staff as they enter the facility. Those showing a high temperature will be asked to return to their home.  Any temperature 38°C (100.4°F) and above in adults is considered a fever.
    .
  • Social distancing will be maintained via the following:
    .

    • Individual Workout Stations – We will be setting up 8 Workout Stations in the gym to eliminate sharing of equipment
      .
    • Stations will be set up with all the equipment you will need for the daily workout to ensure proper distancing and cleanliness of equipment.
      .
  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfection will take place in the gym.  Coaches will clean the bathroom, spot mop and wipe commonly touched surfaces between each class.  It will be the members responsibility to clean and disinfect all the equipment in their station at the end of their training session.  Stations will be stocked with personal sanitizing spray and cloth.
    .
  • Limited access in change rooms.  Washrooms will be accessible though our lockers and showers will be off limits for the time being.  Members are asked to come ready for their workouts.
    .
  • Non-Contact paperwork and payment options.  Almost all of our paper documents, including waivers and membership agreements, will now be sent electronically, reducing physical contact and taking an additional initiative to protect the environment!  We will only be accepting payment via Credit Cards which can be processed online, over the phone or in person with our new POS tablet.
    .
  • Other Member and Staff Considerations.
    .

    • Members and trainers will be required to stay at home if they show any signs or symptoms of infection (Symptoms of COVID-19 from the CDC).
      .
    • Members will be contacted immediately if it becomes known that a member or coach has tested positive for Covid-19.  The names will be kept confidential.
      .
    • We will encourage frequent hand-washing and sanitizing
      .
    • Please bring your own water bottles!
      .
    • Members can choose to wear masks but they are not mandatory
